INDIA COLES

STATEMENT

Drawing inspiration from minimalist installation I seek to create works that not only utilise space as a medium, but actively engage with both viewer and site. Working with largely mass-produced components, chosen materials are manipulated as little as possible - placing emphasis on inherent desirable properties. My work is transformative yet familiar, aiming to be as authentic and as true as possible from the outset.

The site-responsive work is subsequently affected by the viewer, whose presence alters the shared space; this serves as a reminder of their own physicality.


For me, the artwork exists somewhere between the art object, the site and viewer interaction; creating something that is at once immaterial, whilst inextricably linked to its materiality.


Key influences include; Carl Andre, Tara Donovan, Olafur Eliasson, Martin Creed, Dan Graham, Robert Irwin.

SENSE & SENSIBILITY: AESTHETIC (IM)MATERIALITY

This audience-activated exhibition comprises work from three artists with a link between their practices, a point of interest, an integral element that being the audience, and how the audience interacts with these pieces and experiences them with their own individual aesthetic sensibility.
